High-resolution dynamics of the spring bloom in the Gulf of Finland of the Baltic Sea
Description: During the period from March to the end of May in 2009 and 2010, intensive measurements and sampling were undertaken in the Gulf of Finland. The compiled results indicate a high variability of the phytoplankton distribution both temporally and spatially. The spring bloom dynamics and heterogeneity was influenced by physical forcing, such as prevailing circulation in the surface layer and the development of stratification, including the upward and downward movement of the seasonal thermocline.
